I live about a mile from this beach and often walk or drive along it for a variety of reasons, in fact I often drive along there rather than going through the town centre where travelling from the Holland end of Clacton to the bowls club, golf club etc. as it it a pleasant drive. The beach and the gardens... More

Always enjoy a good day out at the Pier. Bar very good for price, good food and great entertainment in bar area ( chip shop outside very expensive, eat in bar). Rides on pier great for kids. Armstrongs opposite clean and tidy very nice inside, cheaper to go bowling on the pier tho.

If you choose to spend the day or longer in Clacton-on-Sea and want the beaches, move away from the Pier area and head further down to the Martello area the beaches are quieter the sand is lovely and with the great weather we get you will have a lovely time.

The beach to many is around the pier shame thinking that, because if broke that train of thought and looked at the whole area the beach area can in spring and summer beat any oversea beaches.

Beautiful soft-sanded beach, plenty of in-season seaside activities and attractions both in an out of doors, with plenty of paved and off-path walking. Storefront paths and town planning generally very appropriate for mobility impaired, wheelchairs, mobility scooters etc. Ample choice of chain and independent eateries and varied forms of accommodation.
